    Applied at three last week, waiting on an answer. If the public wants to keep taking from us there isn't much reason to stay in the game.

    I read fast and I don't agonize over the answers. I either know the answer or don't.

    Got called into the tac office in the academy because I was always finishing the POST tests in 5-10 minutes and averaging 97-100%. They thought I was cheating. I told them to pull out any test and give it to me right then. They declined and left me alone.

    Retired96, The LASD DST exam has changed since then. It was alot tougher when you took it for sure.

    I recall back in 83 or 84 LASD was concerned that the failure rate for the DST test was extremely high. So they randomly picked about 300-400 Deputies to go take the DST test. I happened to be one of those Deps, and was a little upset as I was given a moments notice and the test was on my RDO..The day of the test it turned out all the Deps. were on days off and also given very little notice....Everyone was po'ed...I don't think any of us put any effort in the exam, we justed wanted to go home on our day off....I later learned that the failure rate was very high for those seasoned Deps. that took the test....I was never told if I passed it or not...I believe the test was based on a 12th grade education....

    was told this by a former LAXPD-now LASPD officer that works locally as the SRO at a nearby H.S. Remember taking the test back in the dark ages( when LASPD drove all "midnite blue"( burple) cars, and barely passed it( damn near half the folks taking the test in my group, didn't get an invite to the PFT at rio hondo Academy)

However, i wouldn't say that all the written exams are "Jr. High School" level. For instance, Beverly Hills PD only has about a 30-40 percent pass rate, as opposed to other written exams that have a much higher pass percentage. The P.O.S.T. exam is just a reading and writing exam with various "pass points" depending on the agency you are applying with. Typically with a T-score between T-48-T-52.
    The pass rate of a test doesn't mean it's difficult and doesn't mean it's above junior high school level, it means uneducated, dense people are taking the test. Every police test (LAPD, LBPD, NBPD, CMPD, HBPD) I took was a joke. I took one at Costa Mesa that gave a T-score. Ten minutes after we started I was done. They thought I wanted a bathroom break when I turned my stuff in to leave. I never got my score but did get moved to the next phase.

    I took the LSAT a few weeks ago. That's the first test I've ever thought was hard.

    I agree with DOAcop38. LASPD's written test was pretty tough.

    Blind Justice, I'm not sure which agencies accept the waiver, however LAPD's written exam is pretty easy. Just 3 essay questions.

    Im taking the LAPD written in 2 weeks. It will be my second CA test, other than the 100q for the POST Waiver. Berkeley PD was rather simple, but a lot of math.

    Anyone know which departments accept the waiver?

    Don't know if its been mentioned, but the L.A. School PD has a very tough ( or at least they did) written exam- and was told that at least 30% + actually fail the entry exam......

    I took LASD's in 2008 and thought I did poorly but scored rather high. They had 60 questions then so it may or may not have been the same exam you took. That was when I first started testing in LE. At the time I did think it was harder than what I imagined. I thought all LE exams would be cake!
